About me

Hi - my name is Hannah! I am a highly specialist oncology and palliative care physiotherapist, with fire in my belly to keep people physically and mentally strong through cancer.

I work with people at all stages of their cancer care (before, during and after treatment) and those managing palliative diagnosis. I have extensive experience working in a variety of hospital and hospice settings, empowering people to manage the physical side effects of cancer and live their life fully.

I previously worked with rugby and football teams, including Chelsea FC. For this reason, I am particularly passionate about supporting active individuals through their cancer treatment and return to the activities they love.

I am fully committed to those under my care; my clients needs and goals are at the heart of all I do.

My special interests are pre and post-operative recovery, exercise coaching/prescription and symptom management (fatigue/breathlessness).

Services offered:

  • Cancer/Treatment related fatigue management programme
